    We just finished a play, bit of training and right now she's stretched out across my lap....

    There's just something about her.... I don't even know how to explain how attached I've become in such a short time... And when I get home from work, she makes me feel so good she's so happy to see me! Even though often she's spent the day with my daughter...

    This is exactly how I was when I first got Cricket and she latched onto me super quick. There is just something about a mexidog that just warms your heart. Curious if Siren is an "old wise soul" type like Cricket and Talla.

    Was going to say the EXACT same thing. They really are unlike other dogs, aren't they? I have a hard time explaining Talla to people... she's so incredibly different. :)

    She is different...

    She's insanely smart... And I'm used to smart dogs!

    She figured a very quickly that if she barks, I'll get her to do something different and treat for that… She started barking at me! I'm working on that now.... she also figured a very quickly that I have the treats in my hand behind my back.. And will run behind me looking for them! I've had to really lean on Lynn for help on how to handle training a dog quite this smart!

    And there's something about her eyes, they just seem so deep and so soulful....

    This thread made me smile so big :D Siren is a really cool little dog and I'm so happy that she's settled in well with you!

    Mexidogs are expert problem solvers, I think it's in their genes. I wish I had taken a video, someone once brought one of those board puzzle toys to the canine refuge that we used to have. It's the kind with the little slots they have to push around in order to reveal the food, and all the dogs immediately figured out how to get the food. My border collie had no clue, she just got frustrated, then pissed off, and picked the whole thing up and threw it on the ground.

    Oh boy... That's definitely the truth. I can't get anything past Cricket. She always figures out a way around things. I wanted to get some of the puzzles we sell at work but I feel like she would figure them out too fast and then end up bored of them after a while.
